Getting 'Keyboard Customizer Utility' to work w/ external PS2 keyboard

Discussion in 'IBM Thinkpad' started by news.tiscali.nl, Apr 25, 2007.

  1. I want to access the audio volume control (green on-screen display) through
    my external IBM PS2 keyboard when my Thinkpad T20 is docked (i.e. lid
    closed). So I downloaded and installed the 'Keyboard Customizer Utility',
    but had a hard time getting it to work and found many companions in distress
    on the internet...

    The culprit: under 'Options' » 'Automatically disable external keyboard
    assignments when a USB keyboard is removed' is ENABLED (checked) by default.

    I.e.: this utility will NOT WORK BY DEFAULT (sic!) for anyone using an
    external PS2 keyboard..., because there is no USB keyboard.

    Solution: UNcheck the option mentioned above and it works like a charm! At
    least for me...

    Hope this helps!
